Live From the Field: Fossil Prep

Our paleontology team – led by Dr. Robert Bakker – is back in Seymour, TX this week, digging for Dimetrodon at a site they’ve now been working for several years. (You can read more of what’s been found already in our daily blog from the field in 2007).

Today’s update comes David Temple – our associate curator of paleontology and a one of our BEYONDbones bloggers – he fills us in on the progress from yesterday – including a discussion of what will happen with the fossils that have been discovered this week once the team gets them back to the Museum.
